Was it Jane fearnley whittingstall (his mum) who said 'the difference between pain and pleasure in the garden is knowledge' -I go through an awful lot of pain!

I don't understand why someone would want to be a lawn.....I have enough people walking all over me without encouraging it

OH. Sorry. Just realised. I thought they all had to be gardening themed.

A weed is a plant that has mastered every survival skill apart from learning how to grow in rows.

Not a quote as such, but the quote of a poem......from 'Carve her name with pride'.

"The life that I have
Is all that I have
And the life that I have
Is yours

The love that I have
Of the life that I have
Is yours and yours and yours

A sleep I shall have
A rest I shall have
Yet death will be but a pause

For the peace of my years
In the long green grass
Will be yours and yours
and yours

 

 

 Talking of cracking up - Deborough Kerr, a spoken song on her album 'Send in the Clowns'. Powerful.

Another little sonnet to add a little joviality to the thread.

"Do not stand at my grave and weep

I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die."
